Hita Preservation District in 2D

 

A series of photos taken in the historical preservation district in Hita, Oita, that focus on two-dimensional composition. Similar to the recent post I did on Omori.


Traditional Japanese architecture offers a variety of pleasing proportions and textures.


Juxtaposing with  natural forms.......


Sometimes a simple, repetitive pattern works..... this is in front of a museum of the local matsuri which I will cover in a future post....


Existing artwork and advertising is often a good subject. One wonders what a compulsory fire might be.


Many times property owners create their own aesthetic arrangements.....


A fundamental function of the photographer is to choose where to place the frame.....


If you happen to enjoy any of my posts, please feel free to share. Also a comment is always appreciated
